How is an IUD or IUB Fitted?

The hormone free IUB™ is placed in your uterus during an office visit after an individual consultation by your health care provider. Your health care provider first examines you to find the position of your uterus. After measuring your uterus, the IUB™ can be carefully inserted with a tube containing the IUB™ copper pearls. If women have not been pregnant yet, it can happen that the cervix needs to be stretched a little bit before inserting the IUB™ copper pearls.


The tube is removed and the IUB™ remains inside your uterus where it finds its ideal position and becomes active immediately. The correct position of the IUB™ can be checked with ultrasound examination. Two threads extend into your vagina.


The best time for the placement is the last days of your menstruation when the cervix is open wide enough and the possibility of a pregnancy is the lowest. 4-12 weeks after the placement a check up examination should be done. After that a yearly check-up with your health care provider is recommended.


How is an IUB (Copper t) Different from the IUB?

Ball-shaped IUDs solve the problem of malposition – a situation where the standard T-shaped IUD shifts and turns inside the uterus and which is difficult to detect on ultrasound.


Malposition could also be a possible cause for pain and excess bleeding.
